An Amazing Look at Dentures: Before and After
Dentures Offer Many Benefits Cosmetic and Restorative
Dentures can turn a compromised smile into a dazzling smile. They also fill out your face, avoiding an aged, shriveled look.
Dentures can allow you to bite and chew healthy foods like crunchy fruits, veggies, and nuts without pain or worry.
Dentures can help you to pronounce words more clearly.
Improved Oral Health
Missing teeth can cause your jawbone to shrink and weaken. Dental implants that support dentures encourage healthy jawbone growth.
A complete, healthy smile thanks to dentures can boost your self-confidence in social and professional situations.

This removable oral appliance consists of an acrylic base that matches the color of your gums. Customized artificial teeth are attached to the base. There are two kinds of traditional dentures: full and partial.
A full denture can completely restore lost function for patients missing all of the teeth in the upper, lower, or both jaws. In the upper jaw, the base of the denture covers the roof of your mouth and gums. In the lower jaw, full dentures are shaped like horseshoes to leave room for your tongue. These kinds of dentures are usually held in place with a strong dental adhesive.
Implant Dentistry Testimonial
If you are missing multiple teeth, a partial denture can fill the gaps in your smile. Many patients choose partial dentures as a removable alternative to traditional bridges. In addition, partials can replace missing teeth even when they are not consecutive. A partial denture has metal or acrylic hooks that wrap around an adjacent tooth for additional support.
Dental implant placement requires surgery, so this highly effective procedure may not work for all patients. Contact us to schedule a complimentary implant consultation in Vero Beach, Tradition, or Port St. Lucie to learn more about the benefits of implant-supported dentures:
- Implant-supported dentures offer superior stability over traditional ones. They will not slip or fall out.
- They are attached directly to titanium implants our dentist surgically places in your jaw, so hooks and messy adhesives aren't needed.
- Dr. Planes can attach full and partial dentures to dental implants so you can enjoy increased stability even if you're not missing all your teeth.
- Dental implants protect the jawbone against atrophy or shrinkage, which is closely associated with tooth loss.
- Implants are a worthwhile investment as the titanium posts can last a lifetime.
- Regular brushing and flossing can keep your implant-supported dentures clean and functioning properly for 20 years or more — no more soaking.
